Due to lack of parent volunteers across the 2021 and 2022 seasons, AYFL will be implementing a volunteer requirement for all families.
Upon registration, families who refuse to volunteer will be required to pay a $100 non-volunteer fee.
There are many ways in which you can complete the volunteering requirement for the 2023 season:

Team Parents are extremely useful to coaches of all divisions. The role of team parent is to ensure that your coach is able to focus on coaching your team rather than managing your team.
Team Parent responsibilities can be split between two parents per team.
For the AYFL, team parent responsibilities include:

AYFL Board is always looking for volunteers to take on active roles in planning, preparing, and executing the Spring and Fall seasons.

For the 2023 Fall Season, we will be implementing the DIBS program by SportsEngine HQ to manage AYFL parents' volunteering.
All parents who do not volunteer as a coach, team parent, trainer, board member, sponsor, or game day announcer, are required to complete 10 DIBS credits.
Each DIBS credit is worth $10 (resulting in the $100 volunteer requirement).
Partially completing (e.g., 3 out of 10) the required DIBS credits will result in a $10 charge per incomplete DIBS credit.
DIBS tasks for the 2023 Fall season will include:
DIBS tasks for each game day/event will be made available on July 31st, 2023. Please note: only 2 people will be able to sign up for a task per game (for example, only 2 parents will be able to sign up/complete the game snack volunteer tasks per game--additional parents who bring game snacks will not be credited with completing the game snack task). Be sure to sign up soon!
NOTE: team parents/managers, registered coaches, sponsors, board members, trainers, and game day announcers DO NOT need to complete DIBS tasks. **Please do not sign up for DIBS tasks if you are one of these roles so that parents can complete their requirements.
NOTE: You can complete DIBS tasks BEFORE the season starts! These will be made available to everyone via email. These include but are not limited to: volunteering at check in for the AYFL combines (3 credits), preparing equipment (3 credits) and attending board meetings (2 board meetings).
If you have any questions about DIBS tasks, please email us at email@example.com.
